Two days before its first flash sale, Nokia 6 registrations approach one million units
On January 12th, we told you that the Nokia 6 had 250,000 registrations for Nokia's historic first flash sale, planned to take place on January 19th. Now, less than a week later, the number of registrations is close to 1 million units. An exclusive in China for JD.com, the Android powered handset is priced at the equivalent of $245 USD. Unlike a pre-order, money does not change hands with a registration. Consider it an indication of interest that a consumer has in a certain phone.

Each registration costs $9, which can be deducted from the cost of the handset by those who are able to purchase it in the flash sale. The actual number of handsets up for sale is usually much lower than the number of buyers who have registered, and the idea is to entice buyers to impulsively make a purchase.

The Nokia 6 features a 5.5-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Powering the handset is the Snapdragon 430 chipset carrying an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 505 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 64GB of native storage. Both back and front-facing cameras have an aperture of f/2.0. The 16MP snapper on the rear includes a PDAF auto-focus feature, while the 8MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats.

The phone tallied a low 44,517 on AnTuTu. To put that in perspective, the smartphone that had the highest average on AnTuTu last year was the Apple iPhone 7 Plus with an average score of 181,316.

Good start.Just keep it stock with minimum bloatware like the Oneplus.

The SD 430 means it's a no go for me.

I'd buy it unless I just wouldn't have bought this crappy Samsung already.

for those people complaining about the SoC, you have to understand that not everyone uses their phone for heavy tasks, most people use them for messaging services, and watching videos. I've said it before, and I say it again, phones are more than hardware, they're about the integration between hardware and the OS, and how well the latter is optimized for the hardware it is running on. one simple example for top notch hardware and bad OS is the One+, and how the performance dips from time to time even when you open the dialer..having said that, i do not know how well optimized Nokia's launcher would be, but I've used it before, and tbh, it's not my cup of tea
